Arizona minimum wage to rise

cash-moneyOn November 7, 2006, the Arizona voters approved Proposition 202, referred to as the “Raise the Arizona Minimum Wage for Working Arizonans Act.” Under A.R.S. 23-364(A), which became effective January 1, 2007, the Industrial Commission of Arizona was given the authority to enforce and implement the Act.

Effective January 13, 2008, final Administrative Rules under Title 20, Chapter 5, Article 12 were approved and are currently in effect.

Effective January 1, 2013, Arizona’s minimum wage is $7.80 per hour. Every employer covered under the Act is now required to pay each employee wages not less than this amount.

  1. It is not such the case that Arizona is required to pay each employee wages not less that $7.80 per hour. The law has an exception. Workers who earn tips get a $3 credit toward the wages. Those workers could be paid as little as $4.90 an hour.

  2. So now we have the big AZ Government telling private employers how much they have to pay their employees. One more big step away from freedom, one more big leap away from free capitalism. I’ll bet McBrewer and her team love this one.

    This is a perfect example of why the Marxist left loves propositions. They give it a nice fluffy name, pour $$ into the campaign from around the globe to hypnotize the low information voters, and presto-some more big government telling US what we can or cannot do.

    When you try to tell your kids and grandkids how it used to be in America, they won’t have a clue!

    God bless America.

  3. how much does the boss get to make before the call it ‘too much’
